@Pepijn Sweep,
Well, I also do not understand. I pay double every time.

I suspect that the importance of the color green to the Muslim is similar to the respect that many Jews have for the color blue.Techelet (Blue Thread)



Quote:
The Torah commands us to include a blue ("techelet") fringe among the tzitzit fringes. This fringe must be dyed blue with the blood of a shellfish called "chilazon." This rare fish is a denizen of the Mediterranean Sea.

After the Jewish people were exiled from the Holy Land, the chilazon was no longer available. For many centuries Jews wore tzitzit without a techelet fringe.

In the past century, there have been certain venerable rabbis who claimed to have identified the chilazon, based on this fish's distinguishing features described in the Talmud. Since then, tzitzit with techelet has made a comeback, and one can often spot people sporting such tallitot. There are many, however, who have cast doubts on the re-identification of the chilazon.

Rabbi Sholom DovBer, the fifth Rebbe of Lubavitch, maintained that according to the teachings of Kabbalah the chilazon will not reemerge until the coming of the Messiah

I think that there is no relation between islam and green color, and in all relgions th green color symbolizes the peace, and for this reasons this color is used in many other religion as Arthodox.

Reading a book on Sufism and a couple on Yoga and Indian mysticism, I think the respect for green color in Islam is because of how they define human nature. As described by kundalini yoga, there are seven major energy centers in human body along side the back bone, Chakras. Each Chakra is represented by a color. In Indian tradition, the most important Chakra, is the one at the top of head, colored purple. In Islamic Sufism, they correspond the same colors to Chakras, by they consider the Chakra located near heart as the most important one, which is colored green.
